Food Gatherers exists to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes in our community by: reducing food waste through the rescue and distribution of perishable and non perishable food; coordinating with other hunger relief providers; educating the public about hunger; and developing new food resources. Food Gatherers is not only Michigan’s first food rescue program, but the first program of its kind to be founded by a for-profit business, our own Zingerman’s Delicatessen. Founded in 1997, we provide enough food for more than 4,500 meals a day. Food Gatherers brings the food to over 150 community programs serving our neighbors – mostly families and children, in need of food.
